Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

The best thing to do is to rely on the Yocto Project documentation, starting with the Yocto Project Quick Start Guide. What follows below is a quick distillation of the information in the Quick Start Guide, but it is highly recommended to read the whole document before beginning. Of course, this is only the tip of the iceberg for embedded Linux development.

PC World - Over the past few months there have been no fewer than three tiny, cheap Linux PCs making headlines, and now there's a fourth to add to the list.
First we saw the Raspberry Pi and the Cotton Candy devices emerge; then, almost exactly a month ago I wrote about the Mele A1000, a small ARM device that sells with Android but can be configured to run Ubuntu Linux as well.
The latest to appear? None other than the MK802 micro-PC, a USB-sized device priced at $74 that runs Android 4.0 and Linux.
I am still waiting for my piece of Pi, planned arrival sometime in Aug/12. Plan on putting ArmedSlack on the Pi.
